NEED A COLLAGEN BOOST?
Microneedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, is a medical cosmetic procedure involving very fine needles that puncture the skin in various depths to cause a controlled injury, which induces the skin to produce more collagen, resulting in a clearer complexion. Microneedling is one of the most effective modalities for skin resurfacing, fine lines & wrinkles, scars, and other skin concerns.
The eDermaStamp® by Dermaroller® features the highest quality, medical grade, sterile needles – optimally placed for precision penetration and maximum safety. With the fastest motor on the market, the eDermaStamp® offers the best results and eliminates reckless tearing of the skin imposed by imitation devices.

CELEBS WHO SWEAR BY IT:
Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Aniston, Brad Pitt, Demi Moore, Kim Kardashian, and more!
MICRONEEDLING IS A SIMPLE PROCESS
It can be divided into 3 main steps:
This is a non-ablative treatment. We respect the integrity of the epidermis and dermis, we use atraumatic (non-traumatic) perforations to gently trigger the generation of new tissue.
Using surgical grade micro-needles we create more than a million micro-lesions in the dermis. The micro-needles penetrate the skin to a specific depth.
2. HEALING CASCADE
The “controlled damage” created during the treatment will allow the micro-wounds to heal slowly & properly. Blood platelets, white blood cells and endothelial cells will release molecular messengers called Growth Factors & Cytokines. This will increase cellular singling and normalize cell functions.
3. THE RESULTS
Micro-needling improves cell-to-cell communications and cell functions. It will also reproduce new collagen, elastin, and GAG’s.
Damaged skin will then be replaced with NEW HEALTHY SKIN which has a better structure and elasticity.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE NEEDED?
For the best outcome we recommend a minimum of 3 sessions, spaced 6 weeks apart. The results will be most noticeable 1-2 months after the last session as it takes 8 weeks for collagen to reproduce.
HOW CAN I PREP FOR THE TREATMENT?
Before coming to the appointment make sure that you are not taking any medications that cause photosensitivity and stop using Retinol products for 2 weeks prior to the treatment. In the case of Accutane, you must discontinue for 6 months.
Please arrive at the appointment with clean skin, free from makeup, lotion, powder, etc.
IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME?
For the first 24 hours, your skin may feel sunburnt and appear quite red. No makeup can be used on the skin, with the exception of Oxygenetix Foundation. You will be sent home with a post treatment kit that includes specific products to promote wound healing, collagen, and hydration.
